Our flexible 2 bedroom suite is private, quiet and spotless. The office space is very flexible and convenient in the suite and lets the user feel worlds away from distractions of the world outside.
Bring your bike, plenty of safe space for it too!
This is a spacious two room, two double bed suite with a private bathroom in a wonderfully, bright and open house on the upper west side of Santa Cruz. It is perfect for a weekend getaway or even a long-term stay. The rooms have plenty of light, windows and even a small balcony overlooking the front garden. The home overall is quite spacious with a great backyard, living room, open kitchen and relaxing dining room. Please feel free to use the entire space!
The suite can have the furnishings varied according to need.
This is a quiet, safe neighborhood with a parking space in the driveway or in front of the house. There is also public transportation one block away. Santa Cruz is also a very bike friendly town and we have plenty of space for you to store bikes if you choose to bring them!
Santa Cruz has so many fun things to do and everything is very easy to get to from our location! We are walking distance from UCSC and Pogonip walking trails, a short drive down to Natural Bridges State Park, West Cliff Drive, Steamers Lane, Cowell's Beach, the Boardwalk and the Wharf. Along the way there are plenty of beautiful views, numerous small beaches and great walking trails. Downtown Santa Cruz is a 5 minute drive away and has many great local shops, bars and restaurants.
Overall, Santa Cruz is a wonderful place to explore, relax and enjoy and our home is a wonderful place to experience it all in. We are all born and raised, Santa Cruz locals, so ask us where to go and what to do! We look forward to your stay!
All downstairs space excluding another private suite, family room, living room, dining room, kitchen, garden, and the second bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
We do not like to impose our presense on our guests, but they are welcome to join us in all we have going on, ie, share a glass of wine, talk over what there is to do at the present time in the area, or just walk them through the entertainment electronics.
Area is quiet, safe, and is very walkable with friendly people all around. We are located so that you can bike, hike or walk from the front door to get to as many places of (website hidden) there are in the area.
The public bus system is at the end of the street. It will take you across the county. There is also (website hidden), nearby, if you are carless, which is a sweet way to have a vehicle when you need one for a not bad price.
We are a very friendly household and look forward to your stay. There is much to do in Santa Cruz so just ask, we have some wonderful recommendations. We ask that you leave everything as you found it and treat our home with respect. We do ask that you take off your shoes when entering and hope for quiet after 10pm.
We were warmly welcomed, and the suite with 2 bedrooms each with a double bed, a computer with internet access, and one private bath was as promised. We loved the decor, soothing colors, and it was very quiet at night. Marlene and Daryl went out of their way and served us dessert one night, drinks, set up the backyard for us to relax and watch hummingbirds of all kinds, and had great bagels and coffee in the morning. They also were great company, with fun conversations, and were also very knowledgable about the area.
Great experience overall! Beautiful home very central to the beaches and shops of Santa Cruz. Loved spending time in the garden and cooking at home since we had the place to ourselves over the weekend.
Absolutely lovely stay! I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting Marlene and Daryl in person yet but their home was lovely and Marlene was wonderful and attentive in helping me make sure all went well! The suite was perfect for me to work during the days and it was the perfect location to go play on West Cliff or downtown. The bed is comfy and use of the kitchen was a great option to eating out. Just a lovely stay, missing it already ;-) And the house and grounds are just beautiful - loved the attention to detail and the lights at night! Thanks for everything!
Marlene and Daryl are great hosts. They were wonderfully welcoming and we felt at home straight away. They were really accomodating of our needs; for instance Daryl moved the wireless modem so we had better internet connection and Marlene was happy to make space in the kitchen for our food. They are also great people to be with--we had some interesting conversations and shared our respective experiences of living in different countries (we are from Australia). Their home is lovely and the guest suite is spacious and comfortable. The back yard is very peaceful and we loved watching the hummingbirds.

Live the life you Love. Don't wait because time is the only thing we really have - enjoy it!
I love honesty, all the plants that grow, my Great Daughters, sleeping in till 8 o'clock, fresh baked anything! Michael McDonald, Susan Tedeschi & Daryl Truck, Joni Mitchell, Atlas Shrugged, Alaska, cruising(not sailing), Veuve Clicquot, Sun, rain and snow, skiing, biking ----- well I try to find good things in even the boring stuff like scrubing the sinks.
I love to travel and discover places and things. Love staying in a house rather than a resort. Love to meet the people in the community and really get to know the area. Visit the markets I only buy things when I travel, clothes, shoes and what ever and love to collect shells, have a pretty good collection now!!
